Our Development Team's Current Composition

I've been interviewing lately for developers to fill the 2 open positions in my company and I've just realized an interesting stat inside our development team. A year and a half ago there where:

    • 4 Caucasians, 2 from India, 2 Chinese, 2 Filipino
    • 2 of the 10 Developers are girls. 1 Chinese and 1 from India.

After 1 year 1/2 with people resigning and us hiring a new batch of developers, composition changed into:

    • 1 Caucasian, 1 Filipino, 2 Chinese and 5 from India.
    • 4 of the 9 Developers are girls. 1 Chinese and 3 from India.

Pretty interesting huh? It's really amazing how the composition of our team changed in a year and a half. I guess its because of the turnover that we have encountered in the past few months..

So how about you? Whats the composition of your IT team?

There's 5 Sr. Devs, 2 Mid Level and 2 QA on my team. We don't have any jr. guys anymore because we try to hire people with more experience rather than plant the seed and grow( it hink its my companys mentality )

I'm not a developer, but I'm in IT staffing. I'm the only Filipino here and the rest (at least 8 others) are Indian. Oh, and one American. Last year, in my old company, we were all Filipinos, and the only Indian was the boss. This is definitely a big change for me from last year :)
